Pretty in Pink










Desert blooms are every bit as spectacular as tropical blooms, (IMHO)!

STUNNING!!! The Cactus flowers are unusually beautiful in my mind.

These are absolutely gorgeous. I think they are even more spectacular because they are in what appears to be a harsh environment.

What Karen Sees said...

Jan, no color enhancement, but I did increase the contrast a bit. The trick to vibrant colors outdoors is to use a polarizer and not shoot in harsh midday sunlight.

Well, your humble opinion is spot on! They are gorgeous, and I LOVE that first one a lot!!

It's just spectacular color. I'll send you one of my weeping cherry today. Not this bright of pink but still wonderful.
